Thanks Tom. I threw a coin, the rip curl won 10 to 6. Thought I'd take the one who first hits 10. The 5/4 drylock was really warm, would've been great if it fit me since it was a real bargain too. Just thinking about getting into the 6/5 and I start sweating haha. The tips about the boots are very appreciated since I had my eyes on the Xcel 7 mm boots aswell.TomW wrote: ↑Sun Feb 03, 2019 1:22 pmYes, this is a difficult choice. Fit is number 1. You have that sorted.
I've used rip curl flashbomb and ebomb several seasons , a 5-3 and a 3-2. I think they are really good and warm. Hold up to my mistreatment. The booties suck, don't last for kitesurf. Inside wears out.
I just bought an Xcel 6-5 drylock with integrated hood. 7mm Xcel drylock boots. Some 3mm gloves with drylock type wrist seal ( economy brand from UK) everything Extremely warm. Used 3 times in 5-4-2c . 2c today in 16-18 knots, on the water an hour and was warm even in hands, which usually freeze. I think the suit is so warm, I get away with thinner gloves. I'm really surprised I can go out and enjoy it in so cold weather.
